A 20 year old man was injured in a one car wreck Monday afternoon on the Old Snow Hill Road near Dowelltown.

Trooper Allen England of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Brandon Keith Linder of Smithville was driving a 2005 Nissan Sentra west on the Old Snow Hill Road when he failed to properly negotiate a curve, left the road on the north side, overturned once, and came to rest on the driver side up against two trees.

According to Trooper England, a school bus driver passing by saw the car and reported the accident.

Linder was extricated by members of the DeKalb County Fire Department's Extrication unit. The Liberty Fire Station was also on the scene and helped set up the helicopter landing zone on Highway 70.

Linder was airlifted by a Life Force helicopter ambulance and flown to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga.

Trooper England says Linder had no drivers license
